    Please provide links to the products you are referring to. I could not find a 410 chain on KMCs website. Nov 7, 2019 at 12:03
  • @ArgentiApparatus, I didn't fined z410 on KMC site. But it appers on aliexpress (aliexpress.com/item/…) Does it mean, that it's fake?

  • It may be that different names or codes are given to different products in different areas, or the 410 is an older product. As far as I can see the 710 is a half link design and the 410 you linked to isn't. Nov 7, 2019 at 16:39

    This is impossible to answer - there are a variety of designs that carry the code 710 , including light and half link and strong formats. I feel this question might be better if you ask about the specifiic design features, like "what is a mushroomed rivet and why would it be a feature ?"

    @GrigoryRechistov To be fair, AFAIK KMC doesn't sell cassettes, cogs, freewheels, derailleurs, cranksets, chainrings, or anything a bicycle chain has to be compatible with. Nov 8, 2019 at 14:39

The 410 series is very basic 1/8" chain. It's one of the most populous single speed chains in the world. There are different color and finish options for it out there.

The 710 series is oversize heavy-duty Street-oriented 1/8" chain with nonstandard/asymmetric outer plates. It's thicker and is purported to have extra-strong riveting.

    I would wish, that KMC manufacturer, had such information on their website.
